Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. SURFACE TRAFFIC AUTOMATION USING NEURAL NETWORKS

    SBC: ACCURATE AUTOMATION CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL IMPLEMENT A NEW APPROACH TO IDENTIFYING AIRCRAFT DURING GROUND OPERATIONS. WE WILL APPLY THE USE OFNEURAL NETWORK TECHNOLOGY FOR SCHEDULING AND TRACKING AIRCRAFT. THIS ROBUST AND MASSIVELY PARALLEL AUTOMATION TECHNIQUE HAS POTENTIAL APPLICATION FOR GROUND TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT. OUR CONCEPT SHOULD WORK WITH RUNWAY FOOTPRINT DETECTION SCHEMES. IT HAS THE POTENTIAL TO DO PATTERN RECOGN ...

  2. BREAKAWAY LUMINAIRE SUPPORT FOR MINI-CARS

    SBC: Adian Engineering Corp.            Topic: N/A

    DUE TO THE DOWNSIZING OF AUTOMOBILES ON U.S. HIGHWAYS, MINI-CARS HAVE BECOME A MAJOR PART OF THE AUTO POPULATION. THE LIGHT WEIGHT AND HIGH CRUSH RATE OF THESE VEHICLES CAN CAUSEHIGH VELOCITY CHANGE LEVELS WHEN IMPACTING MOST EXISTING BREAKAWAY LUMINAIRE SUPPORTS. THIS INCREASES THE PROBABILI-TY OF INJURY TO OCCUPANTSOF MINI-CARS WHEN IMPACTING LUMI- NAIRE SUPPORTS. CONCEPTS HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED WH ...

  4. DEVELOPMENT OF AN ADVANCED FAN BLADE CONTAINMENT SYSTEM

    SBC: Advanced Structures Technology            Topic: N/A

    AN ADVANCED TURBINE ENGINE FAN BLADE CONTAINMENT SYSTEM USING CERAMIC TILES ON A POLYMER FIBER BACKING RING IS PRO- POSED. THE PROPOSED CERAMIC/POLYMER-FIBER SYSTEM HAS PROVEN MORE WEIGHT EFFECTIVE THAN MONOLITHIC METALLIC OR POLYMER MATERIALS FOR STOPPING PENETRATION OF BALLISTIC MUNITIONS PROJECTILES. IT IS EXPECTED THAT THIS TECHNOLOGY, ORIGINAL-LY DEVELOPED FOR AIRCRAFT ARMOR SYSTEMS, WILL DEC ...

  9. NONDESTRUCTIVE TEST METHODS FOR ACCIDENT DAMAGE INSULATED TANK CARS

    SBC: Failure Analysis Associates            Topic: N/A

    THERE EXISTS A NEED FOR FIELD EVALUATION TECHNIQUES ON DAM- AGED RAIROAD TANK CARS, A LARGE PROPORTION OF WHICH ARE OF INSULATED DESIGN CONSISTING OF AN OUTER SHELL, AN INSULA- TION SPACE, AND AN INNER LINER. THESE CARS ARE USED TO HAULMANY POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS MATERIALS AND CHEMICALS, AND THEREFORE, MUST BE CAREFULLY ASSESSED IN THE EVENT THAT THEYARE DAMAGED. A MAJOR DIFFICULTY ARISES IN ATTEMP ...

  10. IN-PLACE AIR PERMEAMETER FOR OPEN-GRADED DRAINAGE LAYERS

    SBC: Geo-systems Engineering Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A RAPID FIELD TEST IS PROPOSED TO EVALUATE THE PERMEABILITY OF OPEN-GRADED ROAD BASES AND OTHER DRAINAGE LAYERS. THE SAME TEST ALSO SHOULD BE ADAPTABLE TO EVALUATE PERMEABILITIES OF OTHER EXPOSED PAVEMENT LAYERS INCLUDING THOSE COMPOSED OF BITUMINOUS OR PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETES, AS AN INDEX TO PERMEATION AND POSSIBLY TO DETERIORATION. IT IS PROPOSED THAT THE PERMEABILITY BE EVALUATED THROUGH USE ...
